Memorial Day Post

Happy Monday blog readers!!! Today is a special Monday here in the States; it's Memorial Day, a day set aside to commemorate men and women who died while in military service to the United States. I thought it would be quite appropriate to feature a Thank You card for today's post.

I created this card using Jillibean Soup Dutch Mustard Soup line and several of Cheery Lynn Designs new releases. One of my favorite features of the card is the double ric-rac border. I love how it commands the viewer's attention and separates the different patterns, allowing a place for the eye to rest. Did you know that there are piercing holes on the ric-rac border? Oh, I will definitely include some stitching the next time I use this border!

I also wanted to share a layout featuring my 2 Little Monsters that was recently published in the Summer Issue of Scrapbooking & Beyond magazine.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. A special thank you to those who have served and continue to serve in the military!!

Don't forget, there's still time to enter our Butterfly Challenge for a chance to win one of two shopping sprees to Cheery Lynn Designs! Good luck!

  4. I really love the card. I'm not into "scrapbooking" YET, but with a grandson, I'm inspired by your layout. I've actually stitched on the ric-rac on a box called "Here kitty, kitty, kitty", and I love the effect. Hugs, dj1952
